Combat Stress, the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health

We are Combat Stress, the UK’s leading charity for veterans’ mental health. For over a century, we’ve helped former servicemen and women with mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The work we do is life-changing and often life-saving. No one else does what we do.

Our unique services

We offer a range of treatment services in the community, at our specialist centres, on the phone and online, and we develop a personalised programme for each veteran’s individual needs. Combat Stress provides the UK’s only residential treatment for veterans with trauma-related mental health problems. Highly trained staff have specialist knowledge of veteran trauma. Our unique combination of psychological and psychiatric treatment, and occupational therapy benefits the most unwell veterans.

History

Our treatment is evidence based: our research study work with the King’s Centre for Military Health Research evaluates and demonstrates the effectiveness of our services. Nationwide, we have a unique peer support service, which is led by veterans for veterans.

Demand from veterans is growing

Since 1919 we have provided support to veterans from every Service and every conflict. We also support reservists and those from the Merchant Navy. On average, after leaving Service, it takes a veteran 13 years to ask for our help. Demand for our services has nearly doubled in the past ten years.

Your donations help our veterans

We’re dependent on donations for 90% of our income. For every £1 donated to Combat Stress, 81p is spent on vital treatment, care and support. Your donation will empower veterans, rebuild families and save lives.

I am writing to you in the hope that you might wish to support our dear friend Mr John Wombwell in his effort to raise funds for Combat Stress through the sale of his fantastic military memorabilia and products from his company Veteran’s Support UK.

We really value Mr Wombwell’s efforts and would like to thank you in advance for helping and supporting his fundraising initiative.  His support will go a long way in helping our vital work with veterans and their families.

Many thanks again for your kind and generous support,
Garry Burns
